“Excellent Homemade Pastrami, Great Steak, Cheap prices, American Owner”
We ate at Alla Griglia last weekend and it was a wonderful experience, They make their own PASTRAMI, pork and turkey. They will be known in Playa for their amazing sandwiches. The bread is amazing! Homemade and great to dip in oil or their olive spread. They have a fantastic cheese try with all sorts of different cheeses including a blueberry goat cheese. I ordered the special of the night, which was a tender, flavorful, filet mignon. It was cooked perfectly. My husband has the pastrami and it was amazing too. A huge sandwich which was a full meal. Our friends enjoyed a 2×1 wine special for a little over 40 pesos per glass – quite a bargain. The chef is American and his wife is Mexican. They make a winning combination and made us feel very welcome. This is a hidden gem in Playa and hope that the locals will give it a try. He just opened a few months ago in Plaza San Pedro, on 5th between 34th and 38th. You can also buy the lunch meats by the kilo to go. http://ow.ly/lPV3k http://ow.ly/i/2jl3i
Cozumel Carnival (pronounced Carnaval in Spanish) is one of the islands main events. It happens at the peak of high season when the weather is at its finest. Festivities attract thousands of people from all corners of the world. It starts the week before Fat Tuesday, or Mardi-Gras. Carnival 2013 is a great excuse to really ring in the new year!
Cozumel Carnival 2013 promises to be as spectacular as ever! With our new streets, pedestrian walkways, downtown landscaping, and improvements all over the island; visitors were greeted in “tropicool” style!
